The two-year international Erasmus Mundus Master's programme in Journalism, Media and Globalisation from University of Amsterdam offers students the unique experience of studying in two European countries. Students spend the first year in Aarhus, Denmark, and then transfer to another university to specialize in one of four distinct areas of journalism and media studies: Media and Politics (University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands), War and Conflict (University of Swansea, UK), Business and Finance Journalism (City University London, UK) or Comparative and Transcultural Approaches (University of Hamburg, Germany).
A select group of students also has the opportunity to spend time at a third university, at the University of California, Berkeley (USA), the University of Technology, Sydney (Australia), or La Pontificia Universidad Católica, Santiago (Chile).
This Master's programme is not intended to provide practical training for students to become journalists. Rather, solidly founded in academic research, it is aimed at practicing journalists and media professionals who wish to further develop their analytical perspective and operate at the cutting edge of their profession.
Journalism, Media and Globalisation is a joint Master's programme. After successful completion of this programme, you will receive a legally accredited Master’s degree in Journalism, Media and Globalisation and the title joint Master of Arts (MA) from the University of Aarhus and the University of Amsterdam.
